He's not doing either so far.
He's going to be a below average major league bat-I thinks that's a pretty likely outcome. The question is does his defense and speed-related activities make up for it when everything is added up at the end of the day.
His upside is "yes they do" and as a result he looks something like an average major leaguer.
Taveras is meh to bleh.
